This is an awesome work. To my eyes it is a very fine balance between fantasy and surreal...Beautiful!

balance between fantasy and surrealism: FANTASTIC REALISM!
Check my essay VIENNA SCHOOL OF FANTASTIC REALISM

I didn't realize that category! This link is good, will enjoy it. I like Fantstic Realism as opposed to surrealism, because I like artists who really get involved, even taken over, by the symbols they are painting. Straight surrealism (whatever that is) has always seemed a bit too intellectual, scientific, dainty with its mythology. I love the visceral sense of hallucination and seeming connection to your life personally that this painting exhibits. The same sense I get from Fuchs...

Thanks for looking -I wrote this originally in 1980 and am currently updating it - still needs annotations and a bibliography.
I am way behind in my correspondences .........................

Considering you like Fuchs - this was inspired by his Cherubims.

Thanks - I checked your faves and found a couple of themes Beauty and the Beast - guess what: I used the Revelation image together with a photo of my wife in a Photoshop creation I also called: Beauty and the Beast [link]
I thought you might be interested
Cheers
